E Social is very much in the heart of the school, as probably the most central boarding house. The best representation of this being that fact that you don’t even need to set foot outside when visiting the dining hall. It is nestled in the picturesque corner of Mansion quad, and the views looking out over college pond are really something special. It is nicknamed the rabbit warren because of its slightly bizarre layout, but this certainly gives the place character.
As the largest house in the school (73 boys) it very much has room for all, making it something of a microcosm of the school. All tastes are catered for – academic, sport, music, drama etc – and the social prides itself on being competitive in all areas. The size of the house also lends itself to having Sixth Form entrants each year – something that brings real variety to the house and is a positive feature of each Sixth Form year group. Its colours are pink and black, and these are worn proudly by every boy who has been lucky enough to spend their five years in E Social.
